In recent years, graphene-based aerogels (GAs) have been extensively studied owing to the excellent characteristics of low density, high specific surface area and porous structure, which show great potential in many applications. The disadvantages of traditional bulk graphene-based aerogels, for instance, strong device-dependence, large size and poor scalable production, limit their practical application and development. Meanwhile, conventional preparation techniques ignore the requirements of materials shape and size for specific application scenarios. As a new aerogels display form with novel structure, graphene-based aerogel microspheres (GAMs) not only have various advantages of GAs but possess properties of flexible and controllable size and scalable production, which tremendously enrich the application scenarios of GAMs.The fabrication methods and structure of GAMs, as well as the application fields of water pollution treatment, electromagnetic wave absorption and electrocatalysis were elaborated in this review.Meanwhile, the internal mechanism of GAS during molding assembly process was also pointed out.

Progress in transparent bulletproof armor based on ceramics
LIU Jia-xi, SHI Xiao-dong, JIANG Liang-bao, LI Xiao-yu, WANG Min-bo, YAN Yue
Journal of Materials Engineering    2021, 49 (11): 30-40.   DOI: 10.11868/j.issn.1001-4381.2020.001117

Requirements for the cockpit of military vehicles are constantly increasing as a result of escalating threats. The traditional transparent bulletproof armor based on glass have been unsatisfactory to relevant application requirements, and lighter and thinner transparent armor based on ceramics is becoming main option. Similar to other bulletproof armor, the main research fields of transparent bulletproof armor include:seek materials with higher performance for armor components; guide the structure design and ballistic test by experiment or computer simulation; understand the main performance of armor materials, the holistic performance of the armor system and the interaction between the components of the whole system more deeply. Based on this notion, the advantages and disadvantages, preparation technology, development, and application situation of the three kinds of ceramic materials commonly used in transparent armor were summarized. Among the three kinds of ceramics, sapphire has the best static parameters. As for the actual effect of bulletproof, the polycrystalline ceramics are better. The main reason for this phenomenon is that the different fragmentation modes of the two kinds of ceramics lead to the difference of projectile-target interaction effect. After that, the crack growth under high strain rate and bullet-proof property of single crystal, polycrystalline ceramics and glass were discussed. Under uniaxial, high strain rate compression, the crack propagation characteristics of materials are sensitive to impact energy/velocity. Polycrystalline ceramics has a composite failure mode of intergranular fracture and intragranular fracture. Under high energy impact, the damage zone of sapphire is similar to polycrystalline ceramics. Lower than critical energy, some sapphire plate orientations damage would be dominated. Finally, the material selection standards and structural design principles of each functional layer were summarized and prospected. Fine grain polycrystalline ceramic materials with high Young's modulus and high hardness are preferred for the strike-layer. Materials with good fracture toughness, high bending stiffness and the ability to localization of the damage within a narrow region should be selected for the intermediate layer. The materials of backing layer require ductility and low density. The bulletproof efficiency of the transparent-armor systems depends on the type and the degree of interaction/integration of different functional layers.

The temperature profile is an important process parameter for the autoclave curing of composite, which has an important influence on the curing time and the quality of the cured composite part. The curing period and curing quality of autoclave processed composite can be simultaneously controlled by the optimal design of the temperature profile. The numerical simulation of the curing process of a C-shaped composite part was carried out. The prediction results are in good agreement with the experimental test results, which verify the capability of the simulation method. Then, the temperature profile was optimized by using the design of experiment (DOE) method and particle swarm algorithm to achieve the simultaneous control of curing period and curing quality. Experiments were also carried out to verify the optimization results. The results show that the optimal design of temperature profile can effectively reduce the curing period and satisfy the constraints of curing uniformity, curing degree and curing deformation. The curing periods of the optimization cases are reduced by 64% and 45%, respectively.

Journal of Materials Engineering    2021, 49 (9): 94-100.   DOI: 10.11868/j.issn.1001-4381.2020.000682

Near β titanium alloy is widely used in automotive and aerospace industries due to their high strength-to-weight ratio and high corrosion resistance. The near β titanium alloy can precipitate ω phase and α phase after solution and ageing treatment, the strength of which can be remarkably increased, usually at the expense of ductility. It is one of the most important structural components of load-bearing that usually as aircraft skin, shell plating, main frame, linker and special fastener. The alloy used in this paper is a self-developed Ti-Al-V-Mo-Cr-Zr-Fe-Nb ultra-high-strength β titanium alloy, which is a typical near β titanium alloy. The characteristic of isothermal phase transformation of near β titanium alloys is diversity and complexity, which is sensitive to temperature and directly affects the mechanical properties after ageing. In this paper, the microstructural evolution and mechanical properties of a Ti-Al-V-Mo-Cr-Zr-Fe-Nb ultra-high strength β titanium alloy after isothermal treatment were investigated by scanning electron microscopy(SEM),transmission electron microscopy(TEM) and micro-hardness tester. The results show that only the isothermal ω precipitates are formed during ageing at 300℃, and the size of isothermal ω phases increase with the ageing time. The isothermal ω precipitates are first precipitated during ageing at 400℃. With the extension of the ageing time, the α phase nucleation occurs near the ω/β interface. No α precipitates are obtained in the alloy aged at 500℃, and needle-like α precipitates are directly precipitated from the β matrix, which is evenly distributed in the β matrix in a "V" shape. Tensile test shows that the tensile strength of the alloy is 1716.1 MPa and the elongation is 2% after ageing at 400℃ for 12 h. The tensile strength of the alloy is 1439.8 MPa and the elongation is 9.84% after ageing at 500℃ for 12 h, and has a good combination of strength and toughness.

The lightweight of vehicles is one of the important means to solve the energy crisis and environmental problems, which has been paid great attention by scholars at home and abroad.Carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites and light alloys such as aluminum and magnesium alloys have a series of excellent mechanical properties and processing performance, representing lightweight materials with great application prospects. It has become a hot research topic to realize the effective joining between the CFRP and aluminum/magnesium alloys which are the promising lightweight materials. However, due to the significant differences in physical and chemical properties between these dissimilar materials, the mixed application of a variety of lightweight materials in the production process is still facing great challenges.The research progress, advantages and disadvantages, and development trend of bonding, mechanical fastening, friction stir welding and its variants were summarized and analyzed. The micro morphology of joints obtained under different bonding methods was investigated. Three mechanisms of friction stir joining between CFRP and aluminum/magnesium light alloys were preliminarily summarized through investigating the micro morphology of joints, including macro anchoring, micro mechanical chimerism and chemical bonding. Finally, based on the above joining mechanism, it is pointed out that the key to further improving the performance of hybrid joints is to increase the surface roughness of the base metal, increase the area of the molten polymer and adopt the hybrid joining techniques.

The friction and wear of mechanical parts mainly occurs on the surface of the material, and about 80% of the failures of parts are caused by surface wear.Friction and wear increase the loss of material and energy, and reduce the reliability and safety.Using laser cladding technology to prepare a high entropy alloy coating on the surface of the substrate can achieve a good metallurgical combination between the coating and the substrate, so as to achieve the purpose of improving surface wear resistance.The main factors affecting the wear resistance of the high entropy alloy coating are the mechanical and physical properties of the coating material (such as hardness, plasticity and toughness), defects generated during the cladding process (such as surface roughness, pores and cracks), friction conditions (such as high temperature environment and corrosive environment).In this paper, the influencing factors and strengthening mechanism of laser cladding high entropy alloy coatings were reviewed and summarized.First of all, the influence of laser process parameters (such as laser power, laser scanning speed, spot diameter) and post-treatment processes (such as heat treatment and rolling) on the quality and performance of the coating were explained.Secondly, the influence of component element selection, high temperature environment and corrosive environment on the wear resistance of the coating was described.Finally, the problems existing in the preparation of high entropy alloy coatings by laser cladding technology were analyzed, and the future development trends were forecasted, such as developing new materials based on far-equilibrium material design theory, using electric field-magnetic field synergy or laser-ultrasonic vibration composite technology to improve the wear resistance of coatings, etc.

4, 4'-diaminodiphenyl ether (ODA) and pyromellitic dianhydride (PMDA) were used as monomers. Carbon nanofiber (CNF) was used as the reinforcing agent. CNF reinforced polyimide (PI) composite aerogels were prepared with acidified CNF (a-CNF) via sol-gel process followed by freeze-drying technology. The morphologies, thermal insulation, microwave absorption as well as compression properties of PI composite aerogels were characterized. The results show that the volume of PI composite aerogels is shrunk from 45.52% to 35.32%, and the density is decreased from 0.084 g/cm 3 to 0.069 g/cm 3 with the increase of a-CNF content. The composite aerogels exhibit bigger pore sizes and wider pore size distribution after the introduction of a-CNF as well. CNF in PI matrix play roles for reducing the shrinkage of PI composite aerogels, thereby the thermal conductivity is reduced. Additionally, the reflection loss (RL) of PI composite aerogel with 15%(mass fraction) of a-CNF (15% CNF/PI) reaches -9.7 dB at 8.3 GHz. This is due to the fact that the introduction of CNF induced the conduction loss and the porous structure of aerogels provides better impedance matching. The compressive strength and modulus of PI composite aerogels with 15% of a-CNF content are increased by approximately 1.5 times and 2 times compared with pure PI aerogel, respectively.

The volume fractions of γ (austenite), ε-M (hcp martensite) and α'-M (bcc martensite) in static and high speed compressed high manganese transformation induced plasticity (TRIP) steel were calculated by the XRD technique to investigate the effect of strain rate on the kinetic characteristics of γε-M and ε-M→ α'-M transformation. Orientation dependence of γε-M and ε-M→ α'-M transformation in high speed compressed specimen was analyzed by the EBSD technique and the calculation of martensitic transformation crystallography. The results show that the effects of strain rate on γε-M and ε-M→ α'-M transformation are different. Compared to static compression, the γε-M transformation is inhibited due to the higher stacking fault energy, and ε-M→ α'-M transformation is promoted because higher stress during high speed compression. Compared to static compressed specimen, martensitic transformation is accelerated at the early stage of high speed compression. High speed compressed specimen shows orientation dependence of martensitic transformation, which is related to the mechanical work of martensitic transformation in differently orientated γ grains. γε-M phase transformation is only related to the mechanical work of ε-M; ε-M→ α'-M phase transformation depends on the mechanical work of both ε-M and α'-M.

In order to make full use of the porous structure and overcome the shortcoming of low mechanical strength of nanofiber-based separators, polyacrylonitrile (PAN) separator was prepared directly on the surface of graphite anode by the electrospinning method. And an integrated separator/anode assembly (SAA) was formed. The microstructure, mechanical strength, electrolyte wettability, thermal resistance and battery performance were systematically investigated. The results show that the nanofibers in PAN separator are tightly bonded to the rough surface of graphite anode, resulting in a well-integrated interface structure (tensile strength higher than 200 MPa). Compared with polyolefin separators, SAA exhibits better electrolyte affinity and higher ion conductivity (1.9 mS/cm). The above advantages endow the LiCoO 2/SAA full cell with better C-rate (capacity retention 44.3% at 32 C compared with that at 0.5 C) and cycling performances (capacity retention 98% after 200 cycles at 0.2 C) compared with those of LiCoO 2/polyolefin separator/graphite battery. Consequently, this work provides an advanced separator/anode assembly and the corresponding fabrication method, which may be a new strategy for improving the charge-discharge performance and assembly efficiency of lithium-ion batteries.

Perovskite solar cells(PSCs) are paid much attention due to simple preparation and high photoelectric conversion efficiency. Carbon nanofiber films(CNFs) prepared by electrospinning have high specific surface area, electrical properties and chemical stability, but the application in PSCs is limited due to their brittleness. The flexible and conductive Ag/ZrO 2/C composite nanofiber films were prepared by electrospinning and hydrothermal method. After that, it was applied as the counter electrode of flexible PSCs and the effect of Ag nanoparticles with different concentrations on the performance of the composite nanofiber films and the PSCs were studied. The results show that when the concentration of precursor solution rises from 0 g/mL to 0.030 g/mL, the coating effect of Ag nanoparticles on the Ag/ZrO 2/C composite nanofiber improves obviously and all the composite nanofiber films display the excellent flexibility and modulus of elasticity (0.479 MPa), meanwhile, the conductivity of the films increases from 866 S/m to 4862 S/m, so as to enhance the hole-electron transport capacity of the films and the performance of flexible PSCs. When the solution concentration is 0.030 g/mL, the PSCs have best photoelectric conversion efficiency(PCE) of 6.05% and optimal current density (18.44 mA/cm 2). It is of great significance to further improve the performance of flexible PSCs and the application of flexible carbon nanofiber films.

The formation mechanisms of the precursor film (PF) at high temperature were reviewed, i.e., surface diffusion mechanism, evaporation-condensation mechanism, subcutaneous infiltration mechanism, and rapid absorption then film overflow mechanism. In the experimental metallic systems, the most possible mechanism is the subcutaneous infiltration mechanism, which is related to the apparent contact angle, contact radius, height of gap between the substrate metal and oxide film. In the metal/ceramic system, the formation of precursor film is usually rapid absorption then film overflow mechanism. The appearance of PF for adsorption mechanism needs to meet the contradiction of relative inertia and high affinity at the liquid/solid interface. Meanwhile, another possible mechanism of precursor film in high temperature reactive wetting system, namely film transport mechanism, is introduced. It was pointed out that the difficulty of studying precursor film lies in the unpredictability and instability of precursor film, and its development direction should be systematic, and the corresponding theoretical model should be established.

The application of materials with special wettability is a hot research topic in recent years. It is reported that Bi 2O 3 coating with hydrophobic modification could achieve the reversible conversion of superhydrophobicity to superhydrophilicity under UV-visible light irradiation and dark storage. Based on this finding, the application of Bi 2O 3 coating in antibacterial and oil-water separation under different wettability was studied. The results show that superhydrophobic surface exhibits good bacterial anti-adhesion effect against E.coli and S.aureus, while superhydrophilic surface shows selectively antibacterial activity. In terms of oil-water separation, the superhydrophobic surface can block water and allow oil pass through the filter with the separation efficiency more than 93%, while the superhydrophilic surface can block oil and allow water pass through the filter after pre-wetting treatment. Therefore, Bi 2O 3 coating with reversible wettability can be used as an intelligent antibacterial membrane material for oil-water separation, which has potential application in the field of oil-water separation.

The carbon fiber/bismaleimide resin composites were prepared by the autoclave molding process. Effects of carbon fiber type and volume fraction of carbon fiber on the high speed impact properties were investigated by air cannon impact testing machine, ultrasonic C-scanner and electronic universal material testing machine. The results demonstrate that the anti-high speed impact property of TZ1000G carbon fiber reinforced composites is superior to that of the CCF300 carbon fiber, CCF700S carbon fiber and CCF800H carbon fiber reinforced composites. Also, the volume fraction of carbon fiber can improve the anti-high speed impact property of the composites. Meanwhile, the results also indicate that failure modes are highly dependent on the impact velocity. Specifically, when the impact velocity is low, a circular pit with fiber delamination appears around on the impact surface of the composites while delamination appears on the back surface along the fiber direction. Also, when the impact velocity is high, a circular hole with fiber delamination around is formed on the impact surface of composites, and the tearing fracture is observed on the back surface.

Refractory high entropy alloys NbMoTaWTi and NbMoTaWZr were prepared by vacuum arc melting.The microstructure and component distribution characteristics were analyzed, and the dynamic behavior during room temperature to 1500℃,as well as the isothermal oxidation behavior at 1200℃ were studied. Results reveal that NbMoTaWTi mainly consists of single body-centred cubic (BCC) phase, and NbMoTaWZr is composed of BCC and Zr-rich phases.These two alloys are both seriously oxidized above 700℃. Comparatively, NbMoTaWTi alloy is superior to NbMoTaWZr in antioxidation below 1300℃.For both two alloys, the oxygen diffusion inward mainly occurs during isothermal oxidation at 1200℃ and catastrophic oxidation takes place after 3 h. The Ti and Zr addition cannot cause selective oxidation. Although these two elements form a composite oxide layer with other refractory metal oxides, the density and the ability to prevent oxidation is not enough.

Natural enzymes are trace proteins produced by living cells in human body. It is precisely because of the existence of enzyme that the daily operation of organisms can be carried out orderly. At present, enzymes are used in many fields such as biomedicine, catalysis and detection. However, natural enzymes have many disadvantages, such as easy inactivation, poor stability, difficult synthesis, complex purification and high price, which hinder the large-scale application. In the past decades, as a new generation of artificial enzymes, nanomaterials mimic enzymes has gradually become a substitute for natural enzyme due to their high stability and good repeatability. Nanomaterial mimetic enzymes play an important role in many fields. The application of nanomaterial mimetic enzymes in the detection of O2·- and salvianolic acid in the field of electrochemical sensing was focused on in this paper, as well as in the detection of small biological molecules such as glutathione, glucose, cholesterol and H2O2, which can effectively detect the content of heavy metal salts and pesticides in the field of environmental pollution prevention and control, nanomaterials mimic enzymes can also prevent cancer, virus infection and other diseases by detecting specific sequences of DNA. Finally, it was expected that the future research of nanomaterials mimic enzymes will focus on the coupling between nanomaterials mimic enzymes, reaction mechanism, optimization of enzyme reaction environment and substrate selectivity, which will be the key research direction in the future.

Polymer materials are widely used in the mechanical lubricant field owing to their light, low-cost, anti-corrosion, and excellent self-lubricating performance. Adding functional fillers with anti-friction and reinforcing character can overcome the inherent defects of intrinsic polymer materials and then obtaining tribological composites materials with the low friction coefficient, high-wearing, high-bearing, and heat-resisting performance. The anti-friction and anti-wear effect and mechanism of composites by adding functional fillers such as carbon-based materials, transition metal sulfides, microcapsules, soft metals, ceramic nanoparticles, mineral salts, and self-lubricant polymer materials were summarized in this paper. Meanwhile, the mechanical property is the key parameter that can guarantee the service performance and application deadline of polymer materials and also gives the significant influence of tribological performance. The enhanced and toughening mechanism of composites by adding nanoparticles and fiber was also mainly discussed in this paper. Finally, The synergistic effect of functional fillers on mechanical and tribological properties was prospected, as well as the development trend of computer simulation in tribology of composite materials.
